A spiritual sequel to the urban legend-turned-iconic horror tale, Nia DaCosta’s Candyman sets its scene in the present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down.

Now a gentrified neighbourhood, artist Anthony (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) moves into a loft there, and a chance encounter with an old-timer exposes him to the true story behind the town’s infamous Candyman.

Eager to use these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for his paintings, Anthony unknowingly opens a door to a complex and terrifying past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a horrifying wave of violence.
